    In general, biotechnology in livestock production can be categorised as the biological, chemical and physical techniques that influence animal health (survival), nutrition, breeding and reproduction. Biotechnology is that "branch of technology concerned with modern forms of industrial production utilizing living organisms, especially micro-organisms, and their biological processes," according to the Oxford English Dictionary. The actual term applies to a wide variety of uses of such biological technology, including the development of new breeds of plants and animals, the creation of.

    improving livestock production by directly influencing animal health, nutrition, reproduction, breeding and genetics. Therefore, the biotechnology of livestock production is growing faster than any other sectors; and by livestock is predicted to become the most important agricultural sector in terms of value-added commodity 3.
